What kinda mileage you getting ?

Postby Shane M » Sat Aug 01, 2009 2:46 pm

Just wondering what kind of mileage everyone's getting on a full tank ?

If i drive safe but aggressive ;) i get about 450k before the petrol light comes on.

I just finished my "driving like a grandad test" and managed 610k until the petrol light came on :) That was with not going over 4k revs the whole time, which was quite painful to be honest :lol:

I've also driven 50k with the petrol light on before, so that would have give me approx 660k with still the fumes left to run on ;)

not bad i think :mrgreen:

btw, i always use Maxol E5 and notice quite a difference in mileage compared to other petrol.

It really depends on the driving your doing i think,if your doing long journeys on national national roads opposed to short trips around town etc.on average I get between 540-590kms. :wink:

Did the same recently & got slightly more I think around 670k iirc, never again though :lol:

I get fcuk all mileage usually because I live 5mins from work, so I'm only ever doing short trips, but that means I've often got 2-3 working weeks out of about €50 :wink:
